Days 67-71 Weigh In Day
Today is my normal weigh in day and I am only down .07 of a pound. I am happy that I spent time away from home and came home without a gain. It was easier watching what I ate while I was gone though because I was busy! Busy in a great way. My monthly visitor is still MIA. Drives me nuts I tell you.
While I was staying with Marcelle I told her how frustrating it is to follow blogs with such great losses every week. In fast sometimes it makes me want to give up because I feel like I am doing something wrong. I know I have read small losses are consistent & that you have a smaller chance of having such lose skin which I do not want but I want the big numbers like everyone else has. Sometimes it just doesn't feel fair.
What I did learn from her are great tips to try out at home. I was having trouble with the whole yogurt thing.Never filled me up. OMG she had the best oats to put in it. Needless to say I was at the market this morning buying the yogurt & oats. Came home and made me a bowl. I look forward to this every morning now! Who would of thought all I needed was a little crunch. I also learned a couple of great dinners to make that Rachelle ate up and it is good for you. She also made a salad with every dinner that I would of never done but it is the perfect low cal side dish.
Most importantly I learned after going to the gym with her (I haven't been in a year) is that the walking video I do at home is not pushing me enough. I need more. I haven't sweat the way I did at the gym in along time and I loved it. I felt like I was really doing something.
She also gave me the idea to get a heart rate monitor watch and I am. I am going to look into a good one. I want one I can grow with. Meaning has most the bells and whistles I will need as I expand my exercise once it gets warm again.
Thanks again Marcelle for everything you taught me! It is nice to know I can go on a mini vacation during the holidays and still lose weight!!
Hope everyone has a Merry Christmas!
